The only thing I'd challenge Naomi on is her tendency to reduce "technology" to the corporate datafarms. Investing in free code tech, based on open standards, is also an investment in humans and the public interest.

@Matt_Noyes Aim to have production service ready for Jan 2021.

So we need your support now to contract the most powerful server that we can get for June 1st!

See wiki.meet.coop

@Matt_Noyes We're currently pooling resources to get a first BBB server ready on June 1st. Our idea is that Meet.coop members have priority and maybe more session recording capaciry but everyone will be able to register a free account with a basic personal conference room.

From June till September we pool more resources for the next phase and have nodes in various continents.

@Jclua yes! Mateix dia 4 anys després. Cuida't company.

Several coops united to build Meet.coop, The Online Meeting Cooperative, a shared platform based on BigBlueButton.

Ara m'he adonat que el que Friendica interpreta per "peers" no és el mateix que el que interpreten Mastodon o Pleroma.

El fedivers necessita una API estàndard.

If we let police use drone surveillance with face recognition as a public health measure--we’ll likely see them flying over protests next year. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/05/usin

In these times there's renewed interest in videoconf services. A solid and practical solution based on BigBlueButton is now being set up by Meet.coop

Members can run their workshops and meetings on a shared platform, initiated by Collective.tools, femProcomuns and Webarchitects. See you at Meet.coop!

"The snapd component is written primarily in C and Golang whereas the Snapcraft framework is built using Python. Although both the modules use the GPLv3 license it is to be noted that snapd has proprietary code from Canonical for its server-side operations with just the client side being published under the GPL license."

Their UbuntuOne cloud storage service failed because of this refusal to liberate server-side source. Canonical just don't learn.
